In classic Gillis "working to a deadline" style - the Canucks have avoided arbitration and come to an agreement with Danish winger Jannik Hansen (according to Nick Kypreos) on a three year contract. According to Chris Johnston - Hansen's three year deal is worth 4.05 million dollars with an annual cap-hit of 1.35 million. The contract will pay Hansen 1.6 million in the first year, 1.35 in 2012/13 and 1.1 million in 2013/2014. Here's the official press release from Canucks.com.
